hroughout this module you learned the basics of contract formation. An additional requirement of contract formation is consideration. The courts separate legally binding obligations from mere agreements by checking for consideration. Under basic principles of contract law, consideration is the answer to the question, “Why are you entering this contract?” or “What are you receiving for being a party to this contract?”
Consideration, quite simply, is the benefit that each party gets or expects to get from the contractual deal. For example, you paid your college tuition money for an education. You benefit by receiving the educational services of the college, and the college benefits by receiving your tuition money.
For this written assignment, you will further explore the topic of consideration and whether it is present in the following scenarios. Read the facts of the scenario and answer the following questions:
- Is there proper consideration? (Further research on consideration is recommended)
- Why or why not is there valid consideration?
Your answer to each scenario should be a paragraph in length and must include the source of your information in a properly formatted APA citation.
Tasha rents an apartment in an undesirable part of town. While others, such as her Aunt Rita, find it unsuitable, Tasha seems fine with her living situation. She never experiences any problems with the neighbors, and the rent is cheap. One day during a phone call, Aunt Rita tells her that she wants to gift her $10,000 for anything of her choosing. Tasha figures that this is her aunt’s backhanded way of getting her to move, so she decides to search for a home. Upon finding a home, Tasha calls her Aunt Rita and asks for the money. Rita changes her mind and tells Tasha that she no longer wants to give her the money. Angrily, Tasha hangs up the phone and heads to the courthouse to sue her aunt for the $10,000. Is there consideration?
